Cameron was a major factor in the Cobras 2007 SEABL South Title run, when they eventually finished Runners Up to Bendigo. Averaging 20 points, 7.1 rebounds and 2.8 assist per game, he was recognised for his outstanding year with a place on the South Conference All Star Five team.
Cameron didn’t return to the Cobras in 2008 after becoming a restricted player following his rookie NBL Season with the Singapore Slingers. He averaged 9.67 points and 4.2 rebounds in 24 minutes per game in the NBL and was recruited by Waverley to play in the Big V competition. During an injury affected season his production dropped slightly to 17.9ppg and 6.8 rpg as the Falcons made the finals.
The Cobras experienced a disappointing 2008 Season, full of misfortunes and Coach Grant Wallace needed to fill some gaps if the team was going to return to the top. After securing the signature of outstanding import Joe Werner, he went looking for another big man to fill a starting role.
“After his wonderful 2007 SEABL Season here, he unfortunately became restricted with a solid NBL Season in Singapore. The Club had made a policy of securing two US import players for 2008 so we could therefore not fit him into the roster.”
“We are very excited to have him back in a Cobras uniform. He knows us well, our structure and our ethics and we all look forward to watching him and Joe Werner work together,” said Wallace.
Cameron is excited to return to the Snakepit for the 2009 SEABL Season, following his stints with Singapore (NBL) and Waverley (Big V). “I am very happy to be back at Kilsyth and even happier knowing we will have a team with a very real chance of being one of the toughest teams in the country.”
“I believe that Grant and the Kilsyth organisation have done a great job assembling a team which goes 10 deep and will give us the best chance of being a premier team in the SEABL,” said Cameron.
Kilsyth will have some exciting announcements both on and off court over the coming months as they prepare for their 2009 SEABL campaign.
